The Story

The age of the Dark Imperium has begun, and the human race is poised on the brink of ruin. In their darkest hour, the Emperor’s servants have achieved the impossible: the resurrection of the Primarch Roboute Guilliman. Now Lord Commander of the Imperium of Man, Guilliman marshals his forces in a desperate effort to drive back the predations of Chaos: the Indomitus Crusade. Dispatched ahead of the bulk of Guilliman’s war fleets, Chaplain Helios of the Ultramarines is entrusted by the risen primarch with a mission of vital importance. Will he achieve a crucial victory for Guilliman in time, or will a millennia-old obsession spell his doom? And just what manner of weapons will be needed to wage the war to save mankind?

Written by Ian St Martin. Narrated by Bruce Mackinnon.

good but with some gaps

This story is not the best of the Space Marine Conquests series, but it IS a solidly enjoyable story.

Beware of minor spoilers, but not big ones.

First, one of the main topics dealt with in this story is the integration of Primaris Marines into the chapters.

great topic

It is made to bring perspective to the new age of the Dark Imperium, this the author does well.

The antagonists are the 4th Legion, which works well. The primary antagonist is almost a self-parody however. He is SO over the top that he is a detriment to the story.

Second, fight sequences need to make sense. If a guy is doing 3 things in the time that his opponent only does 1 thing, then there needs to be SOME REASON. Being the author, he needs to provide that reason or the sequence becomes unable to be believed.

Third, clips go in hair or hold bags closed. MAGAZINES hold rounds for a firearm. ONLY morons that don't even FAKE to know what they are talking about call them "clips". Please, spend 5 minutes on YouTube watching a gun channel. . . ANY gun channel.

Fourth, how did the Iron Warriors outrun them to the storage sight? They didn't know where they were going, they left later, they had more people and a dreadnought to load up, and somehow the 4th Legion gets there first?

Characters that were said to be out of ammunition were mysteriously shooting again. Pages later, they would be resupplied explicitly, but story internal validity was weak.

This is not the only time in the story this sort of thing happens. It seems as though the book was written then mercilessly edited down for length.

It is like significant exposition or character interaction was just cut out.

just flat

just never got interested in the story. The characters and story just never grabbed my attention. That seems to be the problem with the new primaris marines. They just seem soulless

Iron within !

This book is one of the better space marine conquest books, when I read the book on kindle and left my review I said that John Banks would be the ideal narrator, sadly BL didn’t listen (I did not expect them to) Bruce Mackinnon is not a bad narrator but he fails to bring the gravitas that other narrators do and at times sounds like an annoying teacher or lecturer, great book, ok narration

genuinely had trouble concentrating

the audio was so quiet, except when the chapter titles and music cut in, that I wondered whether my phone was broken. I've listened to most of the Horus heresy and a few extra 40k books on my phone and found that a good narrator helps escalate the drama but in this case I found myself drifting out of thought. I'm not sure whether it's a story problem with too many characters diluting it like it was in 'avenging son' or a problem with the narrator failing to differentiate between bad and good clearly so the momentum didn't switch naturally. but either way in the future I think I'll stick to more established timelines where at least the names (which if we're honest are only slightly different per character without a cheat sheet) help someone follow the story

Fantastic story

Interesting speaker with variations in characters voices!
Another view of the primaris meeting the old space marines.
Nicely described atmosphere and many battles!
